Thanks Kahuna,

Is it standard practice to have equal weightings throughout your portfolio or is that you personal preference?

I was thinking for a younger person with a longer investing period to have heavier weightings on growth stocks, and later in life change more to income generating stocks.

My portfolio clearly doesn't reflect that at the moment, but my stomach for risk is not very high. I definitely want to add some growth stocks in the future.

Kiwisteve.
